Instant Boost of Energy

...Big Goals, Big Vision, Big Dreams!

Started the year with 'Great Intentions' and working hard to make my dreams a reality.

60 days into 2011 (almost 60 days dude) - a lot has been accomplished walhamdulilah - yet have been frustrated because of lack of energy, tiredness and exhaustion. Feel that I have let my soul down and let Allah down as I have big dreams to make it like the 'Pious Predecessors' and I know that by the grace and mercy of Allah (swt) I have been able to achieve all that I have ever wanted to achieve in life and am truly blessed to be who I am - I'm free to be myself.

So, today, whilst mopping around 'complaining' to my friend on BBM (Blackberry Messenger) that I'm tired and exhausted and need a break - I get two instant reminders - one from my boss - the GM of Mercy Mission - where in his email he quoted;

..."Take advantage of five matters before five other matters: your youth, before you become old; and your health, before you fall sick; and your richness, before you become poor; and your free time before you become busy; and your life, before your death." [Ahmad]

And then whilst pondering this saying of the Prophet (pbuh) I came across another instant booster - this from a Sheikh of AlKauthar Institute - via his facebook status - where he quoted a verse from the Qur'an;

..."My Lord! Grant me the power and ability that I may be grateful for Your Favour which You have bestowed upon me and upon my parents, and that I may do righteous good deeds, such as please You, and make my off-spring good. Truly, I have turned to You in repentance, and truly, I am one of the Muslims (submitting to Your Will)." THQ 46:15

...and whilst I need a quick break (Tuesday is an official day off in the month for me) I've been instantly uplifted by these two reminders and am back on full 150% Excel Mode turBo flow!

I hope these verses and sayings benefit you as they did me - and if you have any more reminders and boosters then hollah them my way! :)

Our Life...

...'they' say that, 'When you laugh the world laughs with you but when you cry, you cry alone.'

Our hearts will break and we'll be left confused in chains.

But only we can pick up the broken pieces and only we can fix the jigsaw puzzle to our lives.

Life, as we see it, is a long tough road ahead...

...But believe in Allah (swt) and we will never go wrong

He will put us through many trials and tests in our lives,

But the reward of the aftermath is happiness, joy and His Paradise.
